Tomato and Cucumber Salad

As summer nears to an end, the tomato crops are being picked and given away to lucky people like us. But, what to do with gobs of tomatoes?

One idea was a simple paleo Tomato and Cucumber Salad.  Truly it does not get any easier than this. Well, you could complicate it if you really wanted to but … why?

So, here’s the recipe ~


  • 4 large ripe tomatoes, cut into bite sized pieces
  • 1 large cucumber, sliced into small chunks
  • Black Olives, halved
  • Fresh Basil, chopped coarsely
  • Grapeola, a teaspoon or so
  • Salt, a pinch
  • Pepper, a pinch


  1. In a small bowl, combine all the ingredients (except the Grapeola) then season with salt and pepper.
  2. Once everything is combined, add the Grapeola a teaspoon at a time then stir until you get the right consistency.

That’s it!  I like to use Grapeola Grape Seed Oil with fresh salads like this.  Are you familiar with it?

Grapeola is a polyunsaturated oil that is rich in linoleic acid which is the main source for Omega-6.  One can use about half as much as other cooking oils and get the same results.

Grapeola is kosher, rich in Vitamin E and is free of cholesterol.  It also has a high smoke point and has a very light and mild flavor ~ that’s my favorite part.

So, I hope you enjoy this fresh light salad.
